EDUCATION

The Model Railroad Club, Inc. accomplishes its educational mission through the building and operating of our scale model railroad displays, interpretive displays on the railroad industry and the hobby of model railroading in our gallery area and by conducting research.  This page will be used to describe these activities, so please check back here for updates.

 

From time to time we offer a series of workshops on model railroading.  Information about these workshops will also be available on this page.

 

In addition, information about the Club's history and the role its founder, the late Paul Mallery, played in the development of the hobby of model railroading will be found here.

 

For now, here are a few local railroading facts.  Did you know:

 

Up to the first week of January, 1970 you could board a train in Hoboken Terminal and go all the way to Chicago?

 

Until August, 1958 you could ride trains operated by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad (now part of CSX) at the Central Railroad of New Jersey terminal in Jersey City (now part of Liberty State Park) and go to Washington, D.C., St. Louis, Cincinnati and Chicago, among other destinations?

 

In the 1950s the New York, Susquehanna & Western Railroad operated dozens of commuter trains every day, and even carried mail and express packages?
